Rhino Track Mount Roof Rack for 5' Long Cap on a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 6-1/2' Bed


Looking at the Rhino Roof rack system Y02-480B but the track length appears to be 63, which is too long for my short bed 6.4 foot truck bed cap. I threw a tape measure on it and found that really 5 foot would be the max track I could have. Is there a Rhino Track bundle with a 5 foot track and the 54 inch crossbars? I am thinking 54 inch crossbars are about right, what do you guys think? My truck is 2006 Dodge 1500 quad cab 4x4. And I do have a truck cap on the back Leer i think. See attached pic. Thanks,

The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System # Y02-480B is a confirmed fit for your 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 6-1/2' bed as well as the 8' 1500. The reason it fits both is because the track itself can be cut to length for your specific application. You just need to make sure that the cut is perfectly straight so that it is easier to use the track and the caps fit.

If you would rather not cut the track you can just make your own kit with the 54" Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA137B-2. the Quick Mount Legs # RRRLT600, and the 55" long RTC-Style Roof Rack Tracks # RTC14. The track will be 5" shorter than your 5' long bed cap.
